Okay folks, I know this is a cut down rifle, barrel is 23". Cartouche is marked 1902. Im so new to this rifle that I need any help I can get. Im attaching a pic of the front sight, the rear sight and a lever on the left hand of the receiver. I believe its some sort of magazine cut-off if my memory serves me correct. Also, I cant for the life of me find a safety. I have a Mosin and checked of it was that kind of safety but no dice. Any help is greatly appreciated.

It looks like your safety lever is missing.
